, the answer is i would probably start with something different from what we have in the united states. there is a wonderful book out there called "the healing of america," by a washington post reporter. what we have in the united states is an amalgam of the worst, that just about all of the system that you talked about, we have a little bit from this one, a little bit bad from this one, etc. so you end up with something that cims it is the best health care in the world when the statistics say it is pretty pathetic, the quality of health care and united states. >> you are saying the medicine is pathetic, so what about care? >> the medicine is pathetic, the results are pathetic. and the costs are exorbitant. >> that is very depressing. >> what happens then is that it gets demagogued to death. that is what we're seeing right now. the old things that scare people into tea parties, and from the left, things that are unrealistic. you end up in the same state of political paralysis, and the united states gets into deeper trouble providing something that should be a fundamental right in this
with the united states both economic and security. the obama administration really doesn't want to revisit all of that, but president obama said on the record he understand that a new party coming to power will want to take a look at all the underlying agreements negotiated with the united states by the liberal democratic party. the big issues that will be on the table between these two leaders -- climate change, north korea, and trade. one other issue, of course, is afghanistan with the democratic party of japan came in, the prime minister decided to end a long-standing refueling operation the japanese were conducting with vessels in the indian ocean. but in exchange, the japanese government has put up funds in reconstruction aid. botin the main, this summit, the second time the two leaders have met is not going to produce any new u.s.-japanese announcement on any of the issues i discussed but it will be an opportunity for the two to discuss trade, north korea and climate change. steve: major, just a moment ago the white house office of the press secretary released something. apparently the u
the united states' mission and its allies' mission going forward? >> in the larger sense, of course, the mission really depends on a great deal more than just corruption, although that is certainly a concern here. mcchrystal, i think, is prepared now to accept some redefinition of what the counterinsgency strategy is going to be. that is doing the same with fewer troops or narrowing the mission somewhat. but, again, president karzai, it seems to me, is really of the opinion that the united states is really stuck with them and that his election has given the united states no real alternative. therefore, he has the latitude to really take this as a rate of change that he would like and one that we probably would not like. >> what's the blueprint here? >> the blueprint essentially is to be able to do the basics of what counterinsurgency requires and that is to be able to protect large population centers and to devote most of our energies now into regaining the confidence of the afghan people. unfortunately, karzai's actions in recent times, not just corruption, but failure to deliver b

the health care circumstances in the united states. host: first of all, in the united states, we have the absolute best physicians, best hospitals, best nurses, and best technology. there's no question about that. we are number one in the world as far as the way our doctors are trained and the way all the support people are trained in health care. what has changed over time is that the care has become much more complex. what has also change second degree that more and more physicians have become specialists rather than primary care. i was both, actually. i was trained as a pediatrician. and i'm also board certified as a pediatric cardiologist. i saw both sides of the primary care versus specialists as well. there's more and more specialty care. fewer and fewer physicians. and physicians in training are choosing primary care. primary care is something that we all need to support. other things that are changing is that care is becoming more complex. it's very difficult to even become aware of all the guidelines that are out there. care is becoming more expensive with more technologies.

in the united states. -- we also have a very high immunization coverage rate in the united states. as you mentioned, there are many to wonder about the safety of the vaccine. what we say over and over again is what we know. we know that these vaccines are being made exactly the same way as the seasonal flu vaccine. in the u.s., about 100 million people get the seasonal flu vaccine every year and have a good safety track record. not every form of prevention is promised to be 100% safe, so we have a monitoring system to be ready if there are problems and we find quickly and take action. i think the most important thing for consumers here and in france is that we are as transparent as possible. i could say we are really committed to that. the question from the phone? >> thank you for taking my question. the cdc editorial talks about these numbers that have been reported from august 31 through the end of october and talks about flu activity being substantially above historic levels since record-keeping began. could you put this in perspective? what did the historical levels mean? >> we have b

lawyers will try and put the government on trial. george bush was president of the united states. he kept us say from islamic terrorist attacks at the day he was president. maybe somebody should note that it only happened after he left office on our soil, and that administration is still having difficulty. after they figured out this was an islamic terrorist attack, bin laden instructed people to carry out attacks like hasan carried out. it is in their game plan. the attack on fort drum was such an attack. not necessarily ordered but carried out in the name of jihad. it does not take a genius to figure it out. neil: when michael bloomberg said he supports the obama administration's decision to prosecute terrorist in new york , they can face justice near the site where some many new yorkers were murdered. what do you make sense of? >> they should be treated as war criminals, because it was an act of war. this was an act of war, an act of terror. they should be prosecuted in a military tribunal. we would not have tried the people who attacked pearl harbor in a civilian court in hawaii for w
